                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hmm, that's peculiar.  I lost to the Snake, of course, and still got the title
because he has departed and there's nobody left better than me for the post.  (The
idiot Bill might've been, if he'd defeated the Venomous Concubine instead of dying
like the wuss he was.)  But what I find intriguing is that graduation seems to be
contagious!  Has anybody done a study on this?

                                    Bubba Jones

P.S.  I'm retiring, because my numbers are "relentlessly mediocre" and my "favorite
weapon" is the large shield.  Yuck.  Retirement sounds good.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ZORPUNT a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, TERI LARK fought 
IRMEAN and gained 12 points and contributed to KRILL CAVALRY's 3-1-0.  IRMEAN has 
lost to TERI LARK, falling 11 points, while helping make MONEY PIT a 3-2-0 turn.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and BUBBA JONES remains ZORPUNT's 
top warrior for another turn.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top 
team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Dripping Blade until they win.  
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the KRILL 
CAVALRY stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on ZORPUNT, what are you 
afraid of?  And guess who avoided KRILL CAVALRY stable the most?  Believe it or not, 
it was MONEY PIT.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that INNY MEANIE 
from MONEY PIT was ZORPUNT's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that ZORPUNT has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in ZORPUNT, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in ZORPUNT again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

It's all well and good for Bubba to make cracks about me losing and dying, HE gets to
go to the Isle and be forever young.  That could have been me, if the matches had
been different.  I didn't do this on purpose, you know. -- Ghost of Bill Poole

be a genuine Shew, not at that height, so you must be hiding something.  What secret
lurks, I wonder? -- Mikela Poole

A few notes about e-mailed personals:

You may submit personal ads, columns, spotlights, etc. electronically, either via e-
mail to ads at reality dot com (which doesn't need any more spam, thank you) or on
the web at http://www.reality.com/duel2/modules.php?name=Ads.  When you submit
something, you should get back a receipt from HAL at RSI.  If you do NOT get a
receipt, your ads may have gone astray (not all e-mail makes it to its destination
any more than all snail mail does).  If you DO get a receipt, it should, in the body
of the message, tell you what arena your stuff was filed in.  Check your receipt to
make sure your submission made it to the intended destination.  Also check to see
that everything you sent made it to the same place.  Sometimes HAL, who is rather
simple-minded in some ways, will send half your stuff to another arena if the name
or number of that arena shows up at the beginning of a line.  So if the word Ti
appears at the beginning of a line halfway through your ads, all the ads after that
may end up in Ti, which is closed and doesn't need ads.  As a side note, sometimes
things move slowly, so don't wait until the last minute to send your ads and all.
If they get held up along the way, they may not show up until next turn.  Happy
writing! -- Ed.
